From the longer days to the warmer weather, May is great for several reasons. But what really makes it such a standout point in the year (well, in the UK at least), is the fact it features two bank holidays. The first one is coming up this weekend, so if you’re lucky enough to be jetting away for it, here’s what to pack to look on point.

Now, everyone knows that packing for a short stint away is no easy feat, but as long as you start with the basics you’ll be good to go. First, load up on T-shirts – go for a mixture of plain and striped tees to add some flavour to your ’fits.


Next, it’s all about deciding what to wear on your bottom half. If you’re venturing somewhere hot, pack a couple of pairs of shorts – make sure that you have at least one denim option as it’s the fabric of choice for SS18.


If the temperature's likely to dip in the evenings, you’re going to want some sturdy layers on hand. Add a staple navy shacket to your bag, so you can wear it over any ensemble, and pack a patterned shirt for warmth and nights out.


When it comes to your extras, try and have all bases covered. Footwear-wise, throw in a pair of sturdy creps so you can go wandering in style, but have some sandals on hand if you’ve got trips to the beach lined up. A five-panel cap and shades will have you looking popping while keeping you protected, and headphones and a portable game console will have you sorted for the time spent lounging about at the airport/train station. Happy travels!
